Fraternal Greetings To Reverend Cuticle's Oppossum

Arabella Spommit had three cousins slim and tall [Apsley]

And one was Stella Vision who came from Donegal [fester]

They came athrong to party, in shifts all spick and shiny [Apsley]

But danced not with the aardvark because he was too spiny [fester]

Arabella Spommit was the belle of every ball: [Apsley]

There's a deaf dumb and blind band who must have played them all [Hamish]

But she would never listen, since her mind was quite elsewhere [Apsley]

She wondered why the aardvark had spines rather than hair [fester]

Arabella Spommit stole the heart of every fellow [Apsley]

Except E Greejius, Esquire, who was sore provoked to bellow: [E Greejius]

But his words are unimportant, his message no account, [Apsley]

His frenzied pleas to Apsley to much do not amount. [E Greejius]
